Marathi cinema has made some real progress, the storyline is interesting and content is great. We are confident that both the teams involved in this association will reap benefits”.
Viplove Gupte, Chief Programming Officer, MY FM, “Marathi movies have come of age in last decade. Right from being an official Indian entry to Oscar to producing some innovative and path breaking storylines, Marathi movies have caught the fancy of viewers. After a long lull, where most Marathi movies were mediocre, now the time is for movies which are rich in content. We are focusing specially on these movies as the Marathi film industry also need due recognition beyond once a year awards. The unique content provided by these movies, their storyline, and the actors also needs a strong platform to share the promotions of their movies. In the similar vein when we had roped in actors par excellence Makarand Anaspure and Mukta Barve, we realised that the industry needs a bigger share of voice. Movie tie ups not only give us a chance to play the music but also create innovative content around the movie theme. Be it a contest to win the ticket or getting listeners to meet with the star cast, every step is built with a positive hope of becoming a strong platform for Marathi Asmita”
